Living in Florida where it's still summer on the thermometer long after Labor Day, I don't really pay much attention to the "no white after Labor Day" rule. Plus, I've really been missing this skirt in my casual wardrobe rotation, so it was time to refashion the refashion. In other words, chop it up again and make it smaller.
This time I had to remove the back pockets and flaps because I was taking it in so much that I would've ended up sewing through the middle of them otherwise, as you can see by the pocket "ghosts" below.
Here's the pockets sewn back on. Hopefully the "ghosts" will disappear after a couple of runs through the laundry and wearing. But, really, I don't care. I'm not looking back there and most tops I'm going to wear will cover up most of it anyway.
Here's the "new" skirt from the front:
And from the back. I also left a back slit this time, which should make getting in/out of cars a LOT easier. I made it on the snug side because it's stretch denim and will stretch, and I'm shrinking. This will be the last time I can re-make this skirt, since the sideseams are starting to slide to the back now. I'll be keeping my eyes open for some white denim for next year's skirt.
Parting Shot: Guess who's home for a week?
